Hayward Macdonald Woodturner:
"I started woodturning at the tender age of 64 when I retired from a career in sales. I fell in love with the craft and have been doing this for about 15 years. I enjoy moving on to different challenges. Making Christmas tree ornaments from discarded Christmas trees was my first challenge. From there I went on to making bowls, platters, vases, spin tops, lidded boxes, beer tap handles, wine stoppers, goblets and my latest challenge is laminating various types of wood and creating bowls and platters from that. At 79 years of age I have no intentions of quitting until bad health gets in the way."
